basspro76 (426) - New York, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Drank from a tulip glass poured from the bottle. Pours a hazy, ruby-red body with a full head of tan foam. Aroma of caramel with notes of dark fruit. Nice warming finish. A really enjoyable, complex beer

corkyrory66 (1394) - BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2015
Brune artisanale de 6,5 % abv, refermentée. Couleur brun roux, nette. Bulles fines partout bien vives. Mousse beige, un peu caramel, très épaisse, fine, crémeuse, stable à 12 mm. Arômes de figues, prunes, miel de châtaignier, malt cara. 1ère bouche souple à l’entrée très mitigée sur du malt torréfié, mais au goût terreux. Arrière-bouche un peu aigre, sans classe. 2ème au faible impact, fruits mûrs, mais sans ampleur. Arrière-bouche même assez fade. 3ème un rien plus équilibrée. Arrière-bouche correcte, sans plus. Longueur avec un peu de muscade, cerises noires, poivre, mais le tout au plus disparate possible… Jambes fines, groupées, un peu collantes. Levure un pue épicée, mais très petite ligne. Alcool inutile dans cet ensemble. Finale banale au possible. CONCLUSION : que dire de pareil assemblage ? Du grand n’importe quoi, sans ligne directrice, sans équilibre. Vraiment pas grand-chose à retenir.

Beer5000 (5901) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2015
330 ml bottle. Clear, deep ruby red body with a big, lacing off-white head. Nice aroma of chocolate malt with a hit of dark fruit and yeast. Flavor is smooth, crisp dark malt, mild chocolate and moderate bitterness. Very smooth and balanced. Nice body with a fine balanced aftertaste. Tasty, smooth and pleasant all the way.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle from Beer Dock, Crewe. Pours dark plum red brown with light tan head. Prunes, spice, easy drinking dark ale. Nice aroma, not sure why the low ratings. Good stuff.

rikstar (2243) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2015
0,33l fles meegebracht uit België. Donkerbruin met een grove creme schuimkraag.wat direct opvalt is de chemische lijmachtige geur. Met daarnaast dronken fruit. Smaak is typisch beetje wrang met aardse torenen en een bittere afdronk. Biertje is niet helemaal in balans.

Shark_Pants (609) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2015
Deep brown with creamy tan head. Dark fruits, some biscuit and hint of roastiness in the aroma. The taste is initially quite sweet with toffee and dark fruits like a quad, then a sharp grassy and metallic hop bitterness which transitions to a light sourness. Medium bodied and acidic. Starts off well but the finish really doesn’t work for me.

Boxereddy (476) - BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2015 Donkerbruin bier met licht beige, romige schuimkraag. Zachte zoetige geur van chocolade, zoete dadels, karamel en een vleugje koffie in de neus. Delicaat gebrande donker moutige smaak, zoetig maar niet plakkerig. Bittere hop en een vleugje geroosterde bitterheid in de afdronk.
